703 El Paseo Road in Ojai

We all know that education of our young is vitally important, and we hold varying opinions about how successfully we think our schools are fulfilling this priority. But when we ask What is the goal of education?, we see deep and profound differences in beliefs. Are schools in the business of job training, character formation, civic preparation, socialization, or all of the above? Is education only for the young, or does the need extend to the adult population as well? Further, there is wide disagreement on what the best modes of education are. The options of public and private schools, home schooling, self-directed learning, outdoor education, and project-based learning curriculums are just a few of the choices parents have to make. Finally, how best can we evaluate the effectiveness of our schools when we disagree about what the aims of the schools should be?

This ongoing series on Education in the Ojai Valley will explores these questions, with experts presenting the many sides of these complicated issues in the spirit of informed, civil discourse. We invite you to join us on Sunday, August 25th as we set our course by asking:

What is Education For?

Future topics in the series will address standardized testing, charter schools, funding, class sizes, community involvement, and more. Panelists will be announced soon. $20 pre-sale and $25 at the door
